Album Review

Popular the world over, Costa Rica-born and Mexico-raised Chavela Vargas has for years been one of the leading voices in Mexico's ranchera genre, as proven by this collection, featuring a legendary performance at New York's Carnegie Hall in 2003.

Born: April 17, 1919 in San Joaquín de Flores, Costa Rica

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '90s
